A beloved item or small collection of items you thought you had lost or were out of altogether, but suddenly
realize you have just enough of to hold
you over. An accidental hoard. Cache
by chance. Can apply to anything
from overnight items and clothes kept at your mother's house that prove to be a Godsend
after a tragic
house fire or robbery, to a favorite discontinued HG
face cream you come across in a little travel-sized bottle
you'd all but forgotten
about. A reference to the dramatic
last scene of the 1985
film Goonies, where
the Walsh's housekeeper
realizes Mikey still has a forgotten
marble bag of jewels retained
in his coat pocket from Willie's ship - after the Fratellis had supposedly stripped the Goonies of all their treasure.
Dancers Candy & Porsche, after security checkpoint at JFK:
Candy: "What am I gonna do? Like, all of my baby
oil and glitter
spray for tomorrow night's show are gone."
Porsche, squealing: "Girl, check my Spy bag's secret compartment."
Together: "Oooh, Goonie stash!!"
<Loud howling & high-fiving ensue.>
